Who’s creeping around your computer files? Could strangers be reading your texts?

Information Technology Security Awareness Day 2012 is designed to answer these questions and help make sure your information is as safe as possible.

ITSA Day will take place this Wednesday, October 10, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom.

Along with various presentations, one of ITSA Day’s main events is a “Capture the Flag” competition, with prizes including iPads, a Lenovo laptop, and flip-cams.

CTF competitions are designed to give students the experience of securing a machine as well as hacking and reacting to online system attacks.

Everyone is welcome to enter. For more information, visit http://www.itsa.ufl.edu/.
